Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
SCHUYKILL HAVEN, Pa. — A bakery in Schuylkill County, Pa., is the latest Pennsylvania business to deny service to a same-sex couple after the owner “talked to Jesus for two weeks.” Jennifer and Bethany Petrich tells WBRE-TV they wanted a cake for a ceremony to renew their vows.
The thing that really sucks about this is that there are no laws in place to prevent discrimination against sexual orientation or gender identity. Which means there isn’t a whole lot the couple can do.
My initial reaction when I see these kinds of things is anger. But there has to be a kind, gentle, peaceful way to get the message through to these companies who let beliefs get in the way of basic human kindness. In my opinion, the Christian thing to do would be to make the couple a damn cake. What’s the “Christian” way to tell this bakery that making the cake would be the most harmless thing in the world to do?
The mainstream will embrace non-binary genders when it figures out how to profit from them.
Wow. Yes. Exactly.
